Extinction is usually a slow process. Dinosaurs being the exception.

Hundreds of birds of the same species falling from the sky at once and hundreds and hundreds of dead fish washing ashore at the same time can't possibly be due to extinction.

Honey bees are disappearing worldwide. It's reached epidemic proportions.

Bottlenose dolphins are also beaching themselves along the East Coast.

So far this summer, more than 160 dead dolphins have been found along the Atlantic Coast. In August alone 70 dead dolphins were found in Virginia and 25 bodies were found just last Friday and Saturday.

Something isn't right. In fact, something is very wrong. It has nothing to do with extinction.

We better be paying attention to this.

So 30 million had no insurance.
The ACA will enable 30 million to get it.
The Republicans in repealing the ACA would deny those 30 million that coverage.
You said no one was denied health insurance since 1880. You tell that to millions with medical conditions that got denied for coverage prior to the ACA since you want to bring back that practice.
You're a GD idiot.
You think that without the aca those 30 million would be denied coverage? The 30 million didn't yave coverage for various reasons, but they weren't denied. Homer seperated the 30 million from pre existing conditions in his post. You're a stupid fck dave.

Or, you could work for a couple of years in Utah and talk with the people there about the history they know. You know, kind of like going right to the source.
You've never even been to Utah, have you? You haven't got a clue what's there. I've got a suggestion. Go to Salt Lake City. Find the temple downtown at noon on Sunday. Walk a couple of blocks east to the Beehive Pub. Have an IPA and buy a t-shirt that says "X-Mormon Drinking Team".
You're an idiot.
Or I could go clean toilets like you I guess? How is it that you are able to judge the one behavior so harshly but not the other? Is it only "work" that matters and not the nature of the "work" being done? Why'd we kill the SS gas men then? Why'd we hang Saddam Hussein our stooge? Obviously there are some classes of "work" that are beneath human dignity, right? Want to watch some US Marines pissing on corpses or shooting wounded men and laughing like little girls on YouTube? What about the "work" they're doing? Is that exempt from this invisible, convenient taxonomy of yours? Do YOU get to say when cleaning toilets is noble work and when it's just swimming in shit? Is that your "job" now?

The COLLAPSE was in 2008, dumbass. The decline began in 2006.
Christopher Dodd took over chairmanship of the Senate Banking Committee in January, 2007, idiot. Barney Frank took over chairmanship of the Financial Services Committee in January, 2007, you fucking moron.
We heard a constant stream of lies from these two all the way up to the collapse at the end of 2008, dumbass.
Who is feeding you all this bullshit? They're making you look like an ignorant clown... which is probably no major feat.
So you admit that the collapse started in 2006.

Find a chart that does not have the collapse starting in 2006 & in full swing by Jan of 2007.

Ted Cruz Goes Birther On Himself By Renouncing His Canadian Citizenship
Ted Cruz is worried that he isn’t enough of an American to satisfy the tea party wing of the Republican Party. This is why Cruz had to go birther on himself and proclaim that he is the most American American that has ever lived in America, even though he was born in Calgary.
The problem is that the half Canadian modern day Joseph McCarthy wants to be president in the worst way. He has his eyes on the Republican nomination, and he is terrified that his party won’t nominate a half breed patriot. This is the real reason why Sen. Cruz is performing the birther equivalent of wrapping himself in the flag while French kissing a George Washington impersonator.
This all began with Donald Trump questioning Cruz’s eligibility for the presidency. Sen. Cruz can renounce and deny all he wants, but he can’t change the fact that he was born in Canada, and one of his parents isn’t an American. To those of us who reside in the sane world, this means nothing, but if Sen. Cruz does run for the Republican nomination in 2016 you can bet that his opponents will try to use it against him in a state like South Carolina.
Ted Cruz is eligible to be president, but his darkest fear is that he won’t be “American enough” for Republican primary voters.

<quoted text>You also conveniently forgot to mention that, Christians have been killing Muslims since forever. Care to elaborate on that?
Only during the Crusades. The Muslim invasions took place over many decades and conquered many countries leaving behind some of the most bloody massacres in history, especially in India.

After they conquered Jerusalem and, after many years, they began to deny Christians and Jews access to the Holy Land which the Jews had occupied for 400 years.

This led to the Crusades by the Roman Catholic Church.

However, Muslims have a much bloodier history beginning in the 7th century until the 13th century. The Crusades were short-lived at the beginning of the 1100s.

You were the poster to whom I directed the challenge to point out another president whose father was not American-born..."unless you know of another one besides this one."
That's not a lie...son. It was a challenge.
Sonic named Chester Arthur, so you weren't up to the challenge. You were probably a poor student too.
But I will also remind you that Chester Arthur's father was not a Muslim bigamist who married his mother while being married to another woman, and there was no speculation of an avowed Communist being Arthur's real father who looked very much like him.
And Chester Arthur's father was pro-capitalism.
Still trying to get over yourself, I hope?
What's your point regarding Arthur son?

Facts are facts after all, regardless of what you claim.

And as for Arthur's father, well, you're free to prove your point. Claiming it doesn't make your assertions a fact in the least.

In 2007 they were the controlling forces in the oversight of the financial institutions that collapsed our economy after 2 years of their constant lies and oversight.
In 2003 the CRA was an obvious failure and looming disaster, according to the Director of OFHEO in his testimony to Congress. It wasn't until 2006 that the effects began to take it's toll in housing construction.
The Democrats' Marxist CRA welfare home loan program collapsed the econoomy after 2 years oversight by Democrats.
It's that simple.

We don't know.

But we do know this, if the Republicans would repeal the ACA, those 30million that were enabled by the ACA would be then denied that ACA enabled coverage.

That was the post that was made & the denial of coverage by the repel of the ACA.

Honey bees are disappearing worldwide. It's reached epidemic proportions. It's affecting pollination and crops.

This summer, more than 160 dolphins have been found dead along the Atlantic Coast so far.

Birds fell from the sky en masse two years ago and hundreds of dead fish were washing ashore worldwide during the same year.

Who wouldn't possibly be concerned about this?

The federal government has gotten too big to oversee abuses in the welfare programs or even manage veterans' benefits.
The SNAP program was designed to feed hungry children and the truly needy.

Why is putting the federal government back in its place and giving the power back to the states such a bad idea to most liberals?
So, what does Tea Party Republicans have against feeding hungry children? There is no 'power ' for the Federal Government to 'give back to the states'ever since the United States Constitution was ratified by all the states. The states gave up their independent powers of defense, economy, and managing international relations with other rival states in creating one ,single , centralized Federal Republic.

Do you really live in the Spring Tx area? You should read some of the posts regarding the laughable "ghetto" conditions in the Woodlands and surrounding areas. There are some people who never leave their home.
At least you know the real deal.
We figured out in this economy it takes a great deal to live well. We see young people, newly married, two incomes, deciding that a custom built 3-4 bedroom with 2-3 baths is not enough. It's the instant gratification generation living on the edge. It's scary.
Exactly.
I do know of some less than six-figure neighborhoods in Spring. But, by and large, people are not aware of the professional setting and average income here in The Woodlands.
